I Miss You

Written By: Alice Mackay

Dance with me darling
Catch the rabbit if you can
With loving eyes and sleepy smiles
You caught me first time round
Lets sing the songs I'll

Ship of Friends

Written By: Alice Mackay

You worked so hard to build that ship of friends
Bent you back against stong winds
Gave you heart to make it safe and sound
But the currents kept on running it aground
And now you see it was never going to be sea worthy
Never going to stand the test of storms
And all the while she took on salty water
It was your tears that rot her to the bone

So what would you do now my dear
To change the past and make amends
When in the end its very clear
You wouldn’t chose to sail that ship again

And all those empty promises
That you’d find your hearts desires in distant lands
Were just cast like dust onto the fickle wind
Till no trace remained upon those fickle hands
But now its clear that ship was never going to be sea worthy
Never going to stand the test of storms
And all the while she took on salty water
It was your tears that rot her to the bone

So what would you do now my dear
To change the past and make amends
When in the end its very clear
You wouldn’t chose to sail that ship again

And all hands were lost
Sinking slow beneath the waves
Much too high a cost
Now you know you’ll never sail that ship again
You’ll never sail that ship again.

I Miss You

Written By: Alice Mackay

Dance with me darling
Catch the rabbit if you can
With loving eyes and sleepy smiles
You caught me first time around
So lets sing the songs I’ll sing when you are gone
You can leave your blanket for the cold
And if the time comes round that you don’t want to be found
Just cover your nose up in the snow

But for tonight moonlight rivers are flowing down are skin
Tonight the doors are open there is no need for breaking in
Tonight we’re playing games in the language of our kin
So lay me down
Cause this is love
Yeah this is really love
And oh sweet love
I miss you

Though far away I dream of future days
Your shining eyes beside me when I wake
Baby I’m longing to come home to your loving embrace
You can shower me in flowers
A hundred nights of wine and melodies
Only bind us further in this tapestry
Of a love that flows so true so free
Right into the morning hours

But for tonight moonlight rivers are flowing down are skin
Tonight the doors are open there is no need for breaking in
Tonight we’re playing games in the language of our kin
So lay me down
Cause this is love
Yeah this is really love
And oh sweet love
I miss you
